Travel across the wide-open landscapes and big skies of Namibia in search of the country’s most spectacular sights and thrilling outdoor adventures on this 15-day self-drive adventure. The itinerary is filled with destinations that offer plenty of exciting activities, making it ideal for young-at-heart couples, small groups, and families with older children. In your 4x4 rental vehicle, you will visit memorable lodges that provide cosy and unpretentious accommodation as well as unforgettable safari experiences.
Your tour begins after touching down at Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek and a restful overnight stay in the capital city. Wake up refreshed and head south into the Namib Desert to the point where vast plains and rugged mountains give way to the expansive red dunes of Sossusvlei. Spend two days exploring this unique desert ecosystem, then journey north to the seaside town city of Swakopmund where the abundant Atlantic Ocean contrasts with the towering sand dunes and quaint historic architecture.
Search for highly adapted wildlife in Damaraland including the rare desert elephant, and marvel at Stone Age rock etchings at Twyfelfontein. No African adventure is complete without a classic big game safari, and your visit to both the eastern and western regions of Etosha National Park, Namibia’s flagship game reserve, is sure to fill your safari quota. Your last stop before returning to Windhoek is Okonjima Nature Reserve, where you can learn more about projects to conserve Namibia’s leopards and cheetahs at the AfriCat Foundation.
